After reading about “Uniquely Normal” by Rob Bernstein in Autism Asperger Digest magazine, I decided to purchase it, and I’m so glad I did! Since my son’s autism diagnosis in 2002 I have read hundreds of books about autism. “Uniquely Normal” is one of the very best books on autism which I’ve read.
Rob Bernstein’s strategies are so simple to implement, and don’t cost parents or teachers anything. He works on the premise that every autistic person is an individual, and different from every other autistic person , and he taps into their unique perspective. I love how he uses language to develop thinking skills, which in turn help behaviours and skills to develop. Rather than teaching individuals with autism to learn by rote, Bernstein builds on their capacity to think and figure things out for themself.
Forget overloading the autistic person you love or support with numerous behaviour strategies, rules and visuals, and buy amazing this book!
Fine Motor Skills and Motor Planning can be difficult for some kids with autism. This can impact on their ability to write & draw. That’s why I have created several Fine Motor products, and STEMthinking has created some Drawing Skills products.
Many teachers are already thinking about returning to school after their summer break. With lots of planning and preparing to do and new resources to find for pupils it can be an expensive time of year for teachers.
If you’re looking to save yourself time and money by buying resources for your next class, I have created several DISCOUNTED BUNDLES for you.
I love creating clip cards for students. They’re a great way to engage students of all abilities. For kids who have difficulty writing, clip cards enables them to show their knowledge with out the stress of having to write.
For students who need to fidget, clip cards keep their hands busy and provide their hands with sensory feedback, while they’re focusing answering. Providing a variety of different types and sizes of clips will help your students practice their fine motor skills too.
Clip cards don’t need to just be for Speech & Language activities. I love to use them for Math, Science, Life Skill & Geography tasks too.
This summer, I’ve been busy creating lots of new educational autism resources for my stores.
If you’re looking for speech & language, reading, math, or science resources for the new school year, please check out the wide range of activities in my stores Teachers Pay Teachers, Autism Educators & TES.
